Saturday News Roundup #98
- Booth Brothers Contest: Thank you to all who entered in Tuesday’s contest for free seats to next week’s online Booth Brothers concert. Congratulations to the ten winners (selected by ASGM): Robert A., Stephanie S., Penelope L., Aaron Swain, Linda F., Aaron J., Katie Crutchfield, Stephen G., Eric S., and Dan Plemmons. (Full names were only given for individuals who comment online under their full name.)
- The Browns: Browns members Nick and Jessica Trammell announced that they are expecting their first child next June. Congratulations! (Nick is Mark and LaReesa Trammell’s only child.)
- The Kingsmen: Randy Crawford’s heart surgery was this morning. His heart valve was worse than expected, but the surgery went well, and he is recovering. Bob Sellers of the Capstone Quartet filled in for the last two weekends.
- Friday Night Revival’s Dustin Allman asks if youth’s interest in Southern Gospel is slipping. It seems the consensus is that there are quite a few talented young singers looking to make their mark in our industry, but not quite as many as (say) twenty years ago.
Here is rare professionally recorded footage of Scotty Inman and Tim Duncan with Poet Voices (from their final NQC performance before the quartet configuration disbanded):
